GLENDA MAE (MYERS) DOSSEY
March 1, 1943 – February 21, 2020
Glenda was proudly the daughter of David C. and Addie B. (Pringle) Myers, born on March 1, 1943. She had three siblings; Thelma, James and Clint. She passed away in her Shawnee home on February 21, 2020. She attended Shawnee Public Schools and graduated from Dale High School. She married the love of her life, James E. Dossey, on August 6, 1960. They celebrated 58 years of marriage before his passing on August 8, 2018.
Glenda had several different jobs throughout her life but some of her favorites were working for Dr. John W. Johnson, working at the Department of Transportation and lastly, she owned and operated a restaurant, Glenda’s Country Kitchen, located in Porum Landing at Lake Eufaula. Glenda loved cooking and preparing spectacular meals for her family over the years. Some of her “specialties” were pot roast and potatoes, fried chicken, fried catfish, biscuits and gravy and so much more.
She loved being a Mimi to her grandchildren and her great-grandchildren. Glenda loved playing cards and dominos with her friends and family throughout the years. She loved fishing with her husband on Lake Eufaula – Jim and Glenda had many close friends from the Porum Landing area of Lake Eufaula. They lived there for twenty years. There was also lots of fun (and loud) games of Wahoo played in their kitchen over the years. She loved watching her favorite shows on TV; some of them were old westerns, Wheel of Fortune, Law & Order shows, Criminal Minds and America’s Funniest Home Videos, just to mention a few. Her favorite color was pink; she loved drinking coffee, eating fried chicken livers, coconut cream pie (or any homemade pie); and she also had an extensive love for hummingbirds, cardinals and crepe myrtle trees; plus, she truly adored her puppy dogs (often referred to as her “babies” – they brought her so much joy); Ted. E. Bear (poodle), Bentley and Bryley (brother & sister dachshunds).
She was a loving and supportive mother to her two children, Rick Dossey and his wife, Shannon, of Grand Junction, Colorado; and Denise Kulow and her husband, Marshall of Shawnee, Oklahoma. Other family members left to cherish her memory are her grandchildren, Nicci Stewart of Tecumseh and her husband, Clint, and their five sons; Brittany Gouker of Shawnee and her two sons; Ryne Dossey of Tecumseh and his two children; Chris Dossey of Tecumseh and his wife, Emily, and their two children; Mitch Kulow of Shawnee and his wife, Taylor, and their daughter; plus many other cousins, nieces, nephews and many other relatives and dear friends.
Glenda was preceded in death by her parents, David and Addie; and by her siblings, Thelma, James and Clint; and by her loving husband, Jim Dossey.
Her family would like to extend a special thank you to her medical team at SSM Health St. Anthony (Shawnee) and Faith Hospice (Seminole) and their amazing staff for helping to make her last days full of comfort and loving care.
The family will have a small memorial service at a later date with her close family and friends. She will be laid to rest with her husband at the Dale cemetery, located in Dale, Oklahoma.
